Mont. 'Personhood' Measure Fails To Qualify for Nov. Ballot

October 3, 2012 —

A measure (CI 108) that would have amended the state constitution to define a fertilized egg as a "person" did not receive enough signatures to appear on the November ballot, the Columbia Falls Hungry Horse News reports.

Annie Bukacek, the initiative's sponsor and president of the Montana ProLife Coalition, said the group will continue to pursue so-called "personhood" measures (Hanners, Columbia Falls Hungry Horse News, 9/26).
